for stuff you may not use anymore. it is all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b." first from fox at 3:00 in new york city, a free syria can never include the syrian president bashar al-assad. that today from our secretary of state, hillary clinton, after holding talks on the future of the nation's fighting with the civil war. she met with her russian counterpart and the united nations special envoy to syria over how to stop the violence that has killed more than 40,000. russia has blocked u.n. security council efforts to remove the syrian president. that did not stop secretary clinton from saying any plan for syria's future must not involve the man with the blood of so many of his men, women and children. >> the issue stands with the syrian people in insisting that any transition process result in a unifyied democrat syria in which all citizens are represented, a future of this kind cannot possibly we include assad. >> this comes amid reports the syrians have mixed components for the deadly chemical weapon sarin gas. the obama administration has repeatedly want
, a bright idea. brought to us by the liberal former governor of vermont, howard dean. a man who brought us the scream heard around the world when reran for president. dean says let's face it, america, tacks need to go up for everyone. now, this might not be what you expect from someone like howard dean. it's certainly not the president's position or the position of most americans. another new poll out today shows that most people like the president's idea of only raising taxes on other people. specifically, the top 2%. the problem is according to the congressional research service, the math doesn't add up. that tax hike would only give $678 billion in additional revenue over ten years, now, remember, we're $16 trillion in the debt. now, if we go with howard dean's idea, that gets us $2.8 trillion or about 17% of our debt. adam davidson is the cofounder of planet money and he did the math. he wrote in "the new york times" a while ago, a set of numbers that has stuck with me ever since that increasing the middle class tax burden 8% would have a bigger impact than taxing millionaires at 100%.
from john boehner who is going to try to use the jobs report to the republican's advantage. representative, let's start with the november jobs report numbers. they look very good, good news overall for the koirnlt tree. but speaker boehner said this, the democrats plan to slow walk our economy to the edge of the fiscal cliff instead of engaging in serious talks to avert the cliff, that includes spending cuts and tax reforms the president once supported. the white house has only offered a joke. i understand we have speaker boehner to the microphones. let's take a listen. >> when it comes to the fiscal cliff that's threatening our economy and threatening jobs, the white house has wasted another week. eight days ago secretary geithner came here to offer a plan that had twice the tax hikes that the president campaigned on. it had more stimulus spending than it had in cuts. and an indefinite, infinite increase on the debt limit, like forever. four days ago we offered a serious proposal, based on testimony of president clinton's former chief of staff. since then, there's been no

johns has been following both cases for us. joe, explain the impact of today's decision. >> well, it is big impact. as you know, this is one of those cases that people talk about over the water cooler. let's start with proposition 8. very simple, wolf, it is the california ballot initiative passed in 2008 by the people of the state of california that established marriage as between a man and a woman. it overturned a court case that said same sex couples have the right to marry. windsor is the other case you were talking about, it is an attack on defense of marriage act which was passed in 1996 by the congress, signed by the president. it's called windsor against the united states. it is about a woman named edith windsor who had a long time relationship with her partner, and they were married in 2007. spier died in new york in 2009, and edith windsor got a lot of money. something like $363,000 as a result of that, she was required to pay that in federal estate taxes on her inheritance. she would not have had to pay that money if federal law had given that same sex relationship the

in tokyo what can you tell us? >> this happened friday evening b an hour and a half ago. an unnerving scene. a 7.3 magnitude earthquake. as we understand it, this came along the same fault line that triggered that massive tsunami in march of 2011. we have been watching all the local stations, trying to gather all the information we can. here's what we know at this point in terms of a tsunami. we have seen several small waves come in, about four waves. the biggest one being about one meter or about three feet. the other waves were only about 8 to 16 inches. so no sign of a major tsunami at this point. but it is quite unnerving. there are reports of the trains stopping up there, some of the roads being closed. but in terms of injuries and in terms of deaths, we are only hearing reports of a few injuries at this time. you'll remember there was the crippled fukushima plant in between that region and where we are in tokyo according to tepco, the company that operates the nuclear plants in japan, all is fine at this hour. but we are still waiting for the all clear when it comes to the tsunami wav

for all of us, but especially up in the northeastern coast of japan, which has yet to rebuild since last year's tragedy. here in tokyo, the 7.3 magnitude earthquake rattled windows and shook walls for several minutes. buildings swayed but there were no immediate reports of damage or death. there were ten injuries. off the northeast coast. sirens blaired as officials issued immediate warnings for residents to escape to higher ground. >> translator: i'm all right now. >> reporter: japan's northeast coast was devastated by the march 2011 quake and tsunami that took 20,000 lives, set off the world's worst nuclear meltdown since chernobyl. workers at the fukushima nuclear plant were ordered to evacuate. they reported no irregularities. all tsunami warnings have since been lifted. in the wake of the march 2011 disaster, the state of japan's nearly 50 nuclear power plants remains very much unresolved. on december 16th, we'll have an election. the conservatives are likely to take power. and support nuclear power once again. that's likely to cause gridlock in the parliament, send demonstrators in
